Stacking the Shelves: Browsing the YA shelves

Happy Saturday! Happy Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tygna's Reviews (and the adorable baby Lilly-Ann)! Today at YAF and WS we are highlighting not-so-new YA books we recently picked up from the libraries of NYC and DC, respectively. ARCS are fun, but so is perusing the shelves. Hope you have something fun to read this weekend!

Grad Student: Yahoo for uber-fluff summer reads!
Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan BoysWhen she was nine, Megan Meade met a group of terrible, mean, Popsicle-goo-covered boys, the sons of her father's friend -- the McGowan boys. Now, seven years later, Megan's army doctor parents are shipping off to Korea and Megan is being sent to live with the little monsters, who are older now and quite different than she remembered them. Living in a house with seven boys will give Megan, who has never even been kissed, the perfect opportunity to learn everything there is to know about boys. And she'll send all her notes to her best friend, Tracy, in... Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys.
Observation #1: Being an army brat sucks. Except that this is definitely a better alternative to moving to Korea. Observation #2: Forget evil, laughing, little monsters. These guys have been touched by the Abercrombie gods. They are a blur of toned, suntanned perfection.
Observation #3: I need a lock on my door. STAT.
Observation #4: Three words: six-pack abs.
Observation #5: Do not even get me started on the state of the bathroom. I'm thinking of calling in a hazmat team. Seriously.
Observation #6: These boys know how to make enemies. Big time. Megan Meade will have to juggle a new school, a new family, a new crush -- on the boy next door, as in next bedroom door -- and a new life. Will she survive the McGowan boys?
Crazy Camper: Southern picks, y'all!
Virals (Virals #1)Texas Gothic

Virals by Kathy Reichs is a murder mystery and secret government science experiments combined with high-school best friends who become shifters. Set in Charleston, SC! In Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore a southern family of witches, summer ranch jobs, ghosts and murders combine. CC explained this in two words: "cowboys and witches."What is not to like?
